This was the second blizzard to hit Vankleek Hill in six days. All together I had to shovel roughly 3.5-feet of snow out of our driveway… our very roomy, two lane driveway that could easily fit four cars with space leftover for a two-table ping-pong tournament.
Not many municipalities would allow a curmudgeon to drive a tractor with a front attachment full of spinning steel horizontal augurs down city streets.
This is Cecil, he has been working for the village of Vankleek Hill (re: Champlain Township as of a few years ago) longer than I can remember being alive. He will stop the tractor before he runs you over, eventually, but he’ll get close enough that you understand it was a decision he had to think about.
